Pride of Baltimore

(18 x 24" - Oil) This ship was commissioned in 1988 as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore, which was tragically sunk by a white squall off Puerto Rico in 1986. Both ships were built in the Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners. Because I did my parish internship in Baltimore, the city is a special place for me.
